Concordia’s Hospice Support and Butterfly Release Events

August 25, 2020
+

The butterfly has long been a symbol of hope for people around the world. The caterpillar disappears into a cocoon, appearing dead to all around. Later, it emerges, having transformed into something more beautiful and powerful than it was. Early Christians adopted the butterfly as a symbol of resurrection, of Easter joy. The creature reminds us of its Creator, who sent His Son into unassuming human flesh, who died and was buried in a tomb, who rose again, and who promises life to all who trust in Him. The butterfly is a natural testimony to us of Jesus’ words, “Because I live, you shall also live.” (John 14:19b)

Our annual Butterfly Releases, hosted by Concordia Hospice of Washington and Good Samaritan Hospice, a mission of Concordia, represent some of the many bereavement support services designed to guide the patient’s family and friends through the challenges of grief as they adjust to loss.
